    I dont think there is anything wrong with the boat... Crew Failure.....

    Someone has had the foresail off... he was running under number 3.... and the main appears to be bagged but the bag is damaged...

    Maybe they got knocked down?

    Where's the storm jib n trysail that the skip was so excited about on Twit?
    .
    I know vid is always deceptive, but with the exception of the view over the LBs bow early on, those conditions really look like wind over tide in the Solent.
    Why argue with a nautical wall? I just read the graffiti these days.

    Slight thread drift here. This is fascinating stuff, the speed of information being displayed on this thread: The AIS route, Twitter, RNLI video. Its true, "You can run, but you can hide!"
    Having time is unavoidable.

    Can that happen? I'd assume it's an electromagnetic thing that would automatically release if it lost power, but I've never really investigated. Anyone know?

    (I realise this was just an example of a possibility, not what happened in this case)

    BBC news has just said a sailor has died after a wave hit his vessel in the English channel! Is this the same incident?

    The crewman who died was one of three injured men who were rescued by Falmouth coastguards from the Annie PG in the Channel. The other two men were taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.



    BBC... different incident.
